Well, hello to you all again! At least I could ride this time...


Highlights include:

    Ladies in lycra

    Wet ice

    Very fast technical bits I've never ridden before.

    Ededwards increasingly bizarre stories.

    The grumpy lone cyclist


And the best bit: just being able to get out and ride somewhere.

Nice to have met you all (hope the faceplant guy gets better! :shock: )

And thanks to Ed, Ed, Neil and John for making me feel welcome, and for the mincing pies. :D

Really enjoyed today and great to put faces to names and to meet up with previous riding accomplices.
Big thanks to John, Ed and Neil for the encouragement, mince pies, jelly-babies and chocs.
Big thanks to Mark and Roger for hanging back to help out with the seatpost and to Rampage for finding a suitable bolt enabling me to ride in the afternoon.

Looking forward to the next time. :D

Excellent day, thanks all. Good to meet some RB's haven't seen before. Highlights of the day - the wicked Cannock singletrack, gets better each time. Ladies in lycra :wink: LGF showing us how not to ride on ice. The Parkpre Ti behaved impecibly :D The sheet ice was lethal :shock:

Thank you for the munchies and freebie MBUK willy warmer
